Abstract

Bladder secondary involvement rate in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) reaches 13%. Nevertheless, clinical evidence of such an involvement is very rare (less than 0.5%). We report a case of a NHL arising from the Peyer's plaques of the gut and involving secondly the bladder. The onset symptomatology was urologic. Pathophysiology and clinical features of secondary bladder lymphoma are discussed.
